The Real Deal vs. Illusions
Junious Ricardo Stanton
“In my lifetime, the United States has overthrown or attempted to overthrow more than 50 governments, mostly democracies. It has interfered in democratic elections in 30 countries. It has dropped bombs on the people of 30 countries, most of them poor and defenseless. It has attempted to murder the leaders of 50 countries. It has fought to suppress liberation movements in 20 countries. The extent and scale of this carnage is largely unreported, unrecognized; and those responsible continue to dominate Anglo-American political life.” John Pilger
We live in an era that has been called the “information age” and to a degree this is true, we are bombarded and saturated with “information”, but is it factual and it it beneficial to humanity? I say no. I echo Malcolm X aka El Malik El Shabazz who told a Harlem crowd in a speech, “You’ve been duped, you’ve been had, hoodwinked, and you’ve been bamboozled.”
And we have been and are being duped and bamboozled on a daily basis. The media is a mind control machine. Propaganda, advertising and public relations are all fingers on the glove of psychological domination and manipulation. Today more than ever the corporate media which is owned by a handful of entities speak in a singular voice. “There’s been a lot of consolidation in the media industry in recent years, leaving just six big media companies in charge of most of mass media consumption and distribution. Some estimates claim as much as 90% of U.S. media is controlled by just six companies. The big six media companies right now are Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA), Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS), AT&T (NYSE:T), Paramount Global (NASDAQ:PARA), Sony (NYSE:SONY), and Fox (NASDAQ:FOXA) (NASDAQ:FOX).” Oh they strive to present the illusion there are differences and diversity but all in all they represent the views world view and “reality” of the ruling oligarchs, the only difference is the faces and hairstyles of the talking heads who read the scripts and propaganda they feed us. The content may vary slightly but for the most part the messaging is uniform! It smacks of collusion among governments, the corporate and digital media. In other words we live in a fascist system or more correctly a neo-feudal technocracy run by psychopaths and megalomaniacs.
“The world is run by a vastly powerful and wealthy British-American-European oligarchy of banks, corporations and dynastic families and institutions, which controls much of the wealth of the world. This cabal dominates finance and commerce, manipulates national currencies and economies, controls the media of most nations, and commands the earth's resources. Their wealth and power originated in the middle ages and expanded over the centuries, and today they reign supreme. Few people are aware of the power and global influence of these oligarchs because they dominate the major media. As a result, instead of informing us, the media feeds us a steady diet of entertainment, disinformation and lies - to distract us and misdirect us - so that the oligarchy can achieve its plan to dominate the globe. We see the world through the lens of the major media - for most people that means television. Books, newspapers, magazines, radio, and the internet play a role, but the vast majority of people around the world get their information from television. And, if those who own the global media conglomerates, and those who run the television networks and cable channels, decide to feed us disinformation and lies that serve the agendas of those in control, then, instead of being told the truth, we will learn not about the real world, but about the world they wish us to see, one that will serve their plan for global control. Unless we reach beyond the media matrix to find sources that tell us the truth, authoritarian world government run by this powerful oligarchy will become a reality, and we will all be proles in a George Orwell totalitarian world.” The Global Oligarchy https://beyondthemediamatrix.net
What many of us think is real, reality, news, current events etc. are really illusions or a fake version of reality created by professionals on behalf of the global oligarchy to facilitate their nefarious agenda. “The manipulation of videos and images is routine. In some cases, these manipulations are revealed by readers, independent media and social media. In most cases they go undetected. And when they are revealed, the media will say ‘sorry’ we apologize: they will then point to technical errors. ‘we got the wrong video’. What is important to emphasize is that these media distortions are invariably deliberate.” Who Is Behind Fake News? Mainstream Media Use Fake Videos and Images.

In addition to propaganda, predictive programming (Predictive Programming is theory that the government or other higher-ups are using fictional movies or books as a mass mind control tool to make the population more accepting of planned future events. This was first described and proposed by researcher Alan Watt who defines Predictive programming as “Predictive programming is a subtle form of psychological conditioning provided by the media to acquaint the public with planned societal changes to be implemented by our leaders. If and when these changes are put through, the public will already be familiarized with them and will accept them as natural progressions, thus lessening possible public resistance and commotion.” https://u.osu.edu/vanzandt/2018/04/18/predictive-programming), we are also subjected to constant daily doses of disinformation, censorship and outright suppression.
Be skeptical, question everything, do you own research and most importantly think for yourself!
